Pottery Whimsical – crushing it !

 Pottery Whimsical


This is how the statue at the top looked before it met its fate with a mallet. Marlene Dietrich, from the Hollywood film “The Song of Songs” 1933. The Art Deco polished clay statue was made by  Salvatore Cartaino Scarpitta , as a lifelike image of Marlene Dietrich. She modelled for the statue.

More clay whimsy ! 

No trending, viralling or crushin’ it stuff here, strictly under the radar. Only the overlooked, the obscure, the unheralded classics and largely ignored brilliance will rate a mention. Include anything beguiling, outrageous, fascinating, amusing, controversial & confronting and a compelling post might unfold. Updated weekly.

” I am inspired by the use of texture in pottery, in textiles, and in the other arts. I have always found myself drawn to primitive cultures and arts, and much of that feeling is reflected in my pottery. I like to use found objects or everyday tools to create the texture—just as the ancient artists did. ” – Julie Sewell
